For High School Students
Day in the Life of a Nurse™
In 1999, Nicklaus Children's Hospital staff working with other South Florida nurse leaders through the Nursing Consortium of South Florida, developed the Day in the Life of a Nurse™ program for High School students enrolled in Miami Dade County Public Schools. The program has since expanded throughout the region. Currently, more than 2,000 public and private high school and middle school students from Tavernier to Jupiter participate in the Day in the Life of a Nurse™ program each November.
Through the Day in the Life of a Nurse™ program, students and school faculty participate in a structured visit of hosting hospitals and nursing schools to learn about the many career options in the nursing profession, what it takes to become a great nurse, and what nurses do, through lectures, shadowing experiences, tours, skill lab exercises and more. The one-day experience is reinforced through a classroom curriculum and teacher training offered through the participating public school systems with the assistance of the Nursing Consortium of South Florida.
